Prop­erty own­ers ask for an­other chance

The Compass - - TRINITY SOUTH -

Dear edi­tor,

De­bra and I ap­proached Coun. Gla­dys Mercer af­ter the last coun­cil meet­ing on Aug. 9 to ask her why she is so dead set against us get­ting a per­mit to build our home.

She told us that she was not against us build­ing our home, and that she would like for us to build on our prop­erty, but rules are rules and we must fol­low them. We think Coun. Mercer should take a look out­side the shop­ping mall that she pre­sides over and en­force the rules with all the peo­ple that are parked in the fire lanes.

We un­der­stand that rules are there to keep our world from turn­ing into chaos and to keep things run­ning smoothly, al­though rules that were cre­ated for this town in 2004 in the town plans are prob­a­bly not rel­e­vant for all sit­u­a­tions in 2010. We are not seek­ing to break any rules, we are only ask­ing coun­cil to re­visit and amend the town plans to meet the needs our grow­ing com­mu­nity.

We’ve heard it a few times that the prop­erty we are talk­ing about is prime real es­tate. This town needs to em­brace pos­i­tive change, not fear it be­cause with­out change this town will never grow. We trav­elled through­out North Amer­ica for four years and we chose to set­tle here. Car­bon­ear is a won­der­ful com­mu­nity and we love liv­ing here. De­bra and I are look­ing for­ward to the time that we can build our home on our land. De­bra and Wal­ter Brad­bury
